Times are hectic so making the best of the time we have is essential. Who would have ever thought we would have to teach our kids from home while also working a full-time job?

No judgement either way but we have a solution to spice up your chef life. We believe meal kit delivery services will make your life easier. Best of all, you can skip or cancel at any time as you learn some new, fun recipes.

Without it, the caffeine withdrawal would lead to a splitting headache, a decrease in energy, and that infamous midday slump. It hardly seemed worth it to switch my habit to something healthier. However, after doing some research, I decided to make the switch (at least part-time) to drinking matcha.
